Many people with post-acute and chronic morbidities want to be cared in the comfort of their homes in the presence of their loved ones. Palliative care at home is all about providing this comfort and improving the quality of life of the patient and caregiver at home. It helps to reduce the economic, psychological, social and physical burden on the family members.
There are many prevalent and emerging models that use remote monitoring technology and telehealth. Yet, a crucial need being neglected is delivering continuity of care from the primary treating specialist who understands the case deeply. A related need is to ensure compliance with the care regimen and management of episodes at home with the help of qualified doctors and skilled nurses.
Ubiqare Health presented it's collaborative care approach to meet this need at IAPC Annual Conference IAPCON 2020. We presented how our care model provides continuity of care from primary specialist and reduces hospital readmissions for clinical episodes. Download our paper for full details.
